Sever’s changes ticket model after huge lines for holiday lights

Sever’s in Shakopee has announced it’s making changes to its ticketing model after the opening of its holiday lights drive-thru attraction led to huge lines and long waits.

The drive-through show featuring 1.2 million lights opened on Thanksgiving evening, and over its first two nights the attraction has become overwhelmed.

Previously, those who bought tickets weren’t given a set time slot to attend, and could instead show up whenever they like during opening hours.

But that’s going to change, with Sever’s saying it’s now moving its online ticket system to a limited capacity model where buyers choose a date and one of two time slots.

In an email to customers, Sever’s said drivers were waiting on average 1-1.5 hours to get into the attraction, and said that with its new ticket model not up and running, Saturday is expected to be similarly busy.
